SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
When you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't provide this feature as standard, you could add it with several clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a number of Help articles where you could find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
